Fernando Tatis Jr. Is Absent From The Lineup On Tuesday
San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. is absent from the team's lineup on Tuesday vs. the Milwaukee Brewers. This is most likely a routine day off for the superstar shortstop, who was activated from the 10-day injured list last Friday with a shoulder injury. Jake Cronenworth is starting at shortstop and batting third in his place against Brewers starter Corbin Burnes. The Padres will keep a close eye on Tatis Jr. throughout the season as he gave everyone quite a scare after suffering a left shoulder subluxation during a swing back on April 5. He's off to a slow start this season with a .118/.231/.294 batting line to go along with two home runs and three RBI over 34 at-bats.Apr 20 · RotoBaller Padres Fernando Tatis Jr.
Fernando Tatis Jr. Activated Off Injured List
San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. (shoulder) has been activated off the 10-day injured list Friday. Tatis was expected to return for the weekend series against the Dodgers- he'll bat second against Walker Buehler on Friday night. The star shortstop certainly runs the risk of aggravating his shoulder, though he should remain his usual productive self at the top of the Padres' lineup. Tatis had just a .619 OPS with one homer in five games before the injury, though it seems like a matter of time before he gets going.Apr 16 · RotoBaller Padres Fernando Tatis Jr.
Fernando Tatis Jr. To Adopt Two-Handed Follow-Through?
San Diego Padres general manager A.J. Preller said he was assured that once shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr.'s shoulder is healed, he will not be putting himself at long-term risk by returning to action, other than maybe the risk of another dislocation. The Padres are trying to have Tatis move toward a two-handed follow-through on his swing, which he naturally finishes high with his left arm. They also want him to pick and choose his spots for sliding headfirst on the bases. The Friars remain optimistic that Tatis will return to the lineup for Friday's series opener against the Los Angeles Dodgers after being put on the 10-day injured list. Fantasy managers were thankful that Tatis wasn't out for a longer stretch of time, but all they can do is cross their fingers that another dislocation doesn't occur and cause another trip to the 10-day injured list.Apr 15 · RotoBaller Padres Fernando Tatis Jr.
Fernando Tatis Jr. Rapidly On The Mend
San Diego Padres manager Jayce Tingler is optimistic shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. (shoulder) can be activated off the IL when eligible on April 16. Tatis performed hitting and fielding drills on Saturday as he mends from a partially torn labrum. The 22-year-old suffered a left shoulder subluxation on Monday that looked to be a serious injury but the team is confident it won't require immediate surgery. Off to a slow start in 2021 with just a .619 OPS and one home run, fantasy managers can tentatively expect Tatis back in about a week. Despite the subpar headline stats, Tatis has maintained an elite 64 percent hard hit rate and 95.4 mph exit velocity. Expect that luck to turn if he comes back healthy.Apr 10 · RotoBaller Padres Fernando Tatis Jr.
Fernando Tatis Jr. To Land On Injured List With Shoulder Injury
San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. (shoulder) will be placed on the 10-day injured list with left shoulder subluxation, according to Dennis Lin of The Athletic. In an update provided by Padres general manager A.J. Preller, Tatis was examined on Tuesday, and while he has some slight labral tearing that is consistent with a shoulder subluxation, Preller said the exam was "uneventful." The Padres are going to go with a rest-and-rehab program with Tatis, and Lin says the team hopes to have him back in 10 days. This is good news for managers who were fearing the worst for the consensus first-round pick in drafts this year. While the news sounds like the Padres are hoping for a quick return for Tatis, managers should plan ahead and target a solid backup shortstop just in case Tatis reinjures his shoulder this year.Apr 6 · RotoBaller Padres Fernando Tatis Jr.
Fernando Tatis Jr. Exits Game With Left Shoulder Subluxation
San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. (shoulder) suffered a left shoulder subluxation while swinging at a pitch on Monday night, according to The Athletic's Dennis Lin. Tatis fell to the ground after a swinging strike three, and left the game shortly after with trainers. He will be re-evaluated on Tuesday, and there is no word of how long this could keep him out. However, it is worth noting this could cost Tatis a significant amount of time, looking at the example of Adalberto Mondesi who suffered a shoulder subluxation in 2019 that caused him to miss nearly six weeks late in the year. Managers should hope for the best, but prepare to be without Tatis for some time.Apr 6 · RotoBaller Padres Fernando Tatis Jr.
Fernando Tatis Jr. Exits Game With Injury
San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. (arm) exited Monday's game against the San Francisco Giants. Tatis fell down in a heap after a strikeout in the third frame and required help leaving the field. He was gingerly favoring his left arm as he walked off. The 22-year-old aggravated a long standing left shoulder issue during spring training but it wasn't deemed serious. Tatis was off to a slow 3-for-18 start to the year with a homer. He was replaced by infielder Ha-Seong Kim. More information to come after the game.Apr 5 · RotoBaller Padres Fernando Tatis Jr.
Fernando Tatis Jr. Bashes 465-Foot Homer
San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. finished 2-for-4 with a walk and solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks. Entering the contest with just one hit in three games, Tatis rapped a single early before walloping a mammoth 465-foot homer in his final at-bat. The 21-year-old is off to a sluggish .188/.316/.375 slash to start 2021 while also committing five errors in the field. However, he's been making loud outs and already up to four runs scored. After one series, there's no need to panic.Apr 4 · RotoBaller Padres Fernando Tatis Jr.
Fernando Tatis Jr. Feels "100%"
San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. told reporters that he feels "100%" and "ready to go" for the regular season, per Alden Gonzalez of ESPN. The superstar shortstop aggravated a left shoulder issue in a Cactus League game last week but has since returned to the lineup and looks fine. Tatis Jr. mentioned that his shoulder issue is "nothing I feel like people should be worried about," and that it's been on and off throughout his pro career. The 22-year-old shortstop finished camp with an impressive .375/.444/.719 batting line to go along with three home runs and 10 RBI over 32 at-bats. He gave fantasy managers and baseball fans a collective scare with the shoulder injury but he looks primed to be a five-category beast this season.Mar 31 · RotoBaller Padres Fernando Tatis Jr.
Fernando Tatis Jr.'s Shoulder Issue Considered Minor
San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. (shoulder) could be back in the lineup within "the next couple days," per manager Jayce Tingler. Tatis aggravated a lingering issue to his left shoulder Tuesday after a defensive play and was forced to exit the game. With Opening Day a week away, it makes sense for the Friars to bubble wrap their star player. Tatis has posted a 1.092 OPS with two long balls in 10 spring contests, and fantasy managers can feel confident in his position as a top-three pick. The dynamic 22-year-old has registered a 150 wRC+ in 629 career big league plate appearances with 39 homers and 27 steals. He has the potential to be a five-category monster this season.Mar 25 · RotoBaller Padres Fernando Tatis Jr.
Fernando Tatis Jr. Dealing With Left Shoulder Discomfort
San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr., who exited Tuesday's Cactus League game early, is dealing with left shoulder discomfort according to the team. He reached for a grounder in the hole in the bottom of the third inning and walked off the field after recording the out. "He's fine,"said one person close to the shortstop after he was examined once he left the game. "There appeared to be sighs of relief coming from all parties around Tatis," according to Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune. Those same sighs of relief can be heard all throughout the fantasy baseball community as well. For now, the superstar shortstop appears to be fine but the Padres will play this very cautiously and likely shut him down for a few days. He'll be re-evaluated periodically and the team should provide an update on him tomorrow.Mar 23 · RotoBaller Padres Fernando Tatis Jr.
Fernando Tatis Jr. Exits With Apparent Injury
San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. (shoulder) exited Tuesday's game with an apparent injury. After a defensive play, Tatis came off the field with the trainer. Subsequent reports indicated the initial concern was his left shoulder. Fantasy managers and baseball fans will certainly hope the move is precautionary, but the focus will be any impending updates. A consensus top three fantasy candidate, the 22-year-old boasts a 150 wRC+ resume with 39 homers and 27 steals in 629 career plate appearances. For now, keep him tabbed as a premium selection in upcoming drafts.Mar 23 · RotoBaller Padres Fernando Tatis Jr.
Fernando Tatis Jr. Expected To Return Thursday
San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. (undisclosed) is expected to return to the lineup on Thursday. He suffered an undisclosed injury while diving head-first into home plate this past Saturday and the team has been taking it slow with him ever since. He went through a full workout on Wednesday. Tatis also missed time before the injury while suffering from the flu. Tatis has been fantastic when he's been active this spring. He's slashing .500/.533/.929 with two home runs over 15 plate appearances. He will rightfully be one of the first players taken in all fantasy drafts this spring.Mar 18 · RotoBaller Padres Fernando Tatis Jr.
Fernando Tatis Jr. Returns To Lineup With A Bang
San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. crushed a leadoff home run Friday against the Oakland Athletics. The 22-year-old had been out since March 5 with an illness, but he continued his torrid spring with two knocks in his return. Tatis is now 6-for-12 with two homers as he stakes his claim as one of baseball's most exciting players. Through 629 career plate appearances, El Nio has recorded a 150 wRC+ with 39 homers and 27 steals. With an elite batted-ball profile and legitimate five category potential, Tatis is a worthy top-three fantasy candidate.Mar 12 · RotoBaller Padres Fernando Tatis Jr.
Fernando Tatis Jr.'s Return To Lineup Is Imminent
San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. (illness) completed a full workout Wednesday and should return to game action Thursday or Friday. The 22-year-old star had battled a non-COVID bug earlier this week but appears close to full strength. After posting a 150 wRC+ across his first 629 big league plate appearances with 39 homers and 27 steals, Tatis was rewarded with a $340 million contract extension during the offseason. With an elite batted-ball profile and legitimate five category potential, El Nio is a consensus top-five fantasy candidate.Mar 10 · RotoBaller Padres Fernando Tatis Jr.
Fernando Tatis Jr. Battles Flu-Like Symptoms, Faces Absences
San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. (illness) was held out of Tuesday's lineup and figures to miss at least one more day as he battles flu-like symptoms. It sounds as if San Diego is just being cautious with their star, as manager Jayce Tingler said, "If we were in-season, 100 percent he would be in there." Tatis figures to anchor the Padres' lineup from the get-go, having led the Majors in average exit velocity (95.9 MPH) and barrels (32) last season. There aren't many left sides of the infield that can be anticipated to play as many games so long as the starters are healthy as Tatis and Manny Machado are during 2021. Check back to get confirmation on Tatis' return to the lineup, but there should be no concern surrounding his long-term status.Mar 9 · RotoBaller Padres Fernando Tatis Jr.
Fernando Tatis Jr. In Midseason Form
San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr., fresh off signing a record-breaking contract extension last month, hit a 441-foot grand slam in the second inning of the team's spring training game against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday. The Padres received the nickname "Slam Diego" after becoming the first team in baseball history to hit a grand slam in four straight games in 2020. Tatis' homer, which had an exit velocity of 114 mph, was his second hit of the day. It's not a surprise, as the young star led the league in average exit velocity, hard-hit rate and barrel percentage in 2020. He should also throw in 20-plus stolen bases, making Tatis an elite fantasy asset worth taking behind the Braves' Ronald Acuna Jr. with the second overall fantasy selection.Mar 2 · RotoBaller Padres Fernando Tatis Jr.
Fernando Tatis Jr. Agrees To $340 Million Extension
The Athletic's Dennis Lin reports San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. has agreed to a 14-year, $340 million extension. The blockbuster announcement is effective starting 2021 with a full no-trade clause, per sources, locking up the 22-year-superstar through his age-35 campaign. In two seasons, Tatis has become the face of the Padres, slashing .301/.374/.582 with 39 homers and a 150 wRC+ across 629 plate appearances. Drawing interest as a top three fantasy pick, Tatis is a worthy candidate offering five-category potential with his excellent speed and barrel rates in a potent offense.Feb 17 · RotoBaller Padres Fernando Tatis Jr.
